SCHUMANN / FRANCK
This first album in quintet with piano by Syntonia has received numerous awards. It is still regularly broadcasted today on France Musique. The France Musique Critics' Tribune designated the Franck "Reference Version" in 2010.
"Certainly we keep in mind the performances of Serkin allied with the Budapest, Rösel with the Gewandhaus Quartet, Argerich with her friends Schwarzberg, Hall, Imai and Maisky in Schumann, or Richter and the Borodins, Catherine Collard and the Orlando or Levinas and Ludwig in Franck: the newcomers endure the confrontation without blushing, especially since the (previoulsy unreleased) coupling is profoundly revealing of what musical romanticism could have left more passionate.

"This young ensemble knows what poetry means." - Le Monde de la Musique
